The Catholic Diocese of Bathurst provides a diverse range of educational options, from primary schools in small rural communities to large secondary schools.

More than 9000 students attend 33 Catholic schools in the diocese, enjoying outstanding education in contemporary, Christ-centred learning environments. In partnership with parents and parishes, our schools nurture a relationship with Jesus, educate for academic excellence and prepare students to be confident young citizens who make positive contributions to the world.

Each of our 33 schools strives to work in close partnership with families to develop students as young women and men of character and faith to enable them to achieve their full potential.

Our school communities provide our students with a safe, inclusive, nurturing and challenging environment. Excellent facilities incorporating contemporary technologies and vocational training centres, support the provision of a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Our Catholic schools are affordable, inclusive and welcoming. They are strongly involved in their local communities and provide a wide range of opportunities for parents to engage in the life of the school.
